I was gifted the Lift & Luminate Primer by No7 and I?m quite surprised by how well it sets on my skin. I like that it has a lightweight feel unlike other primers that feel thick and heavy. I expected this primer to be oily because of the wet texture but because it is silicone based it glides on smooth and doesn?t clog my pores. I prefer to wear this primer without my winter foundation as it seemed to make my face look pale. It definitely luminates my complexion I will definitely purchase in the future. I recommend this primer because it is versatile and I like that it leaves a firming effect.
The holy grail of Primers for me
I was very graciously given the opportunity by BzzAgent to review No 7 Lift & Luminate Primer. In the past, I've been a huge fan of Smashbox Photo Finish foundation primer, as well as Touch In Sol No Poreblem Primer, but I must admit that after trying this Primer for the past few weeks, it is now the holy grail of primers for me. I used as directed by smoothing an even layer over clean, moisturized skin right out of the shower and left until dry. It didn?t take long to dry and while I was waiting I went ahead and moisturized from head to toe with lotion as I always do anyway. This product creates such a smooth base for your make-up application. As much as I liked the other primers in the past, neither of them contain Niacinamide which helps manage acne, rosacea, pigmentation issues & wrinkles or Sodium Hyaluronate which is fantastic in restoring moisture, leaving you with a more youthful and revitalized complexion. Sodium Hyaluronate also smooths the appearance of fine lines wrinkles so your make-up doesn't have lines & wrinkles to settle into, making for a much improved texture of the skin. Another huge plus for this primer is how long my make-up lasts with this primer as a base. I will definitely be purchasing again and recommend it to all my friends and family. I can't wait to try it as a base underneath No7 HydraLuminous Foundation
